About the Book
The Prince of Tabor – Many centuries before the age of Man, as the ancient chronicles tell, Tabor, the second greatest kingdom on earth, was under siege. The king had died in battle, and the queen had died in childbirth. As the enemy was closing in, the infant heir escaped far away to the tiny hamlet of Streamside. Brought up in a boisterous tavern by his brother Jacoby, Nathaniel could not know that the trumpets of war had again sounded and that a greater army than ever, its leaders bent on revenge and world dominion, threatened a vastly weakened Tabor. He would be forced onto a quest of unparalleled magic and danger by forces unknown to him. Hellbent on world control, evil necromancer Crepitus sent assassins to Streamside, forcing Nathaniel and his brother into a fight for existence and a struggle to regain his birthright and save his kingdom.
An epic of dark fantasy of immense sweep, The Prince of Tabor blends Norse mythology and supernatural adventure in a world filled with mythical creatures and unparalleled heroism. Prepare for a thrilling ride as Nathaniel and his brother fight their way through goblins, dragons, wizards, and more to reclaim a lost kingdom and save the world.
